What Sets Scout Home Security Apart?

What Sets Scout Home Security Apart?

As a newer provider in the industry, Scout has been serving customers for over 5 years. One unique feature you’ll find with Scout are the RFID door panels. These door panels allow you to arm and disarm your system at the swipe of a sticker. You can easily add an RFID sticker to a common object to help make arming and disarming more discreet. Scout also boasts the ability to use a number of smart devices with its security systems. The provider’s security systems are called “packs”, and these range in price from $229.00 – $549.00. You can purchase professional monitoring with Scout for $19.99/mo.

What we like

  • No contract required
  • Unique RFID door panel for arming and disarming
  • Lots of home automation integration capabilities

What we don’t like

  • Not very many smart devices to choose from
  • No professional installation option
  • Professional monitoring not available with Always On plan
